Texas and Southwest Cattle Raisers Educating Producers on Dealing with Drought

Texas and Southwest Cattle Raisers Educating Producers on Dealing with Drought

The drought across a majority of the southern Plains has had a variety of effects on farmers and ranchers and many cattle organizations are stepping up to help producers deal with these changes. Texas Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association is one of those organizations and they are doing their part by hosting a variety of meetings to help producers better understand some of these issues.

TSCRA Executive Director Eldon White says they are informing people about how to manage their herd during the drought, while especially looking at increased instances of diseases and vitamin and nutrition deficiencies. White says the TSCRA is working to provide that educational base so that producers will have the best possible chance of maintaining their herd health through the drought.

Another topic the TSCRA is tackling is the problem of range rejuvenation. White says TSCRA has been told, if the southern Plains gets back to a degree of normal rainfall, it could be 2 to 3 years before the range will fully rejuvenate and be back in the state it was before the drought. White says this is another topic producers need to focus on besides just herd maintenance.
